High-dose IV Vitamin C

Vitamin C (also called L-ascorbic acid or ascorbate) is a nutrient that humans must get from food or dietary supplements since it cannot be made in the body. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and helps prevent oxidative stress. It also works with enzymes to play a key role in making collagen.

When taken by intravenous (IV) infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when it is taken by mouth. Studies suggest that these higher levels of vitamin C may cause the death of cancer cells in the laboratory.

A severe deficiency (lack) of vitamin C in the diet causes scurvy, a disease with symptoms of extreme weakness, lethargy, easy bruising, and bleeding. The lack of vitamin C in patients with scurvy makes collagen thinner in texture; when vitamin C is given, collagen becomes thicker again.

There are many conditions that may benefit from IVC therapy: arthritis, Lyme disease, bacterial infections, viral infections, pain after injury, and more.

The National Institutes of Health has published evidence confirming Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties.

IV Vitamin C is one of the best antiviral agents available, with the ability to neutralize and eliminate a wide range of toxins. Vitamin C will enhance host resistance, greatly augmenting the immune system’s ability to neutralize bacterial and fungal infections.

Dr. Riordan and The Riordan Clinic in Wichita, KS have published scientific articles and studies on the benefits of IV Vitamin C for decades.

Cancer patients have reported a pain reduction and better chemotherapy tolerance after receiving high-dose IV vitamin C. Intravenous vitamin C is complementary to most oncologic care so, in most cases, patients may continue their conventional cancer therapies if they choose to.

CAUTION: A small group of patients may have a disorder called G6PD deficiency. These patients should not receive high-dose vitamin C therapy. Therefore, we administer a simple blood test to to rule out this condition before initiating higher doses.
